Castleton University’s Accepted Students Days look a little different this year. When the admissions team realized that Vermont’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic meant that Castleton wouldn’t be able to host its traditional, in-person Accepted Students Days, they transformed the events into a weeklong virtual experience for incoming Spartans. This new program makes Accepted Students programming accessible to all of Castleton’s admitted students, wherever they live.
"This spring we are bringing Castleton to you!," said Dean of Enrollment Maurice Ouimet. "We have put together a great virtual program that gives you a glimpse of what you can expect when we welcome you to campus this fall. We can’t wait to see you in person!”
The new, extended event includes presentations about the Academic Support Center, career services and internships, student and residence life, dining services, athletics, financial aid and billing, and information for parents on how to remain connected with Castleton. It also features live conversations with current Castleton students studying in a variety of majors. Members of Castleton’s admission team are always on hand to answer questions and to provide more information, like a timeline for registration and orientation.
The weeklong event includes special programs for international and transfer students, as well as students in Castleton’s Resort and Hospitality Management program.
Admitted students can connect through Castleton’s Class of 2025 Facebook group, which allows future Spartans to get to know one another and ask questions about life at Castleton.
Castleton’s Accepted Students Weeks will be held each month through May. Accepted Students and their families can learn more and register here.
